Stephanie A. Roy

Steptoe & Johnson LLP

Washington, DC, USA


Stephanie Roy is a partner at Steptoe & Johnson. Stephanie draws on her technical background in the aerospace and satellite industries to help her clients navigate government regulation in technology, telecommunications, and security in the United States and abroad. This includes counseling new media companies on issues in telecommunications law, including broadband matters and regulation of Internet platforms and services.

In her domestic practice, she represents satellite, telecommunications, and media companies before the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), the National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA), the Department of Justice, and state public utility commissions. Stephanie’s work with the FCC has helped clients achieve key wins, including the FCC allocation (and assignment to her client) of 20 MHz of spectrum for mobile wireless communications. Stephanie also works with local counsel in jurisdictions around the world to help her clients explore innovative technology and service offerings designed to expand global connectivity.   

Stephanie has been involved in some of the industry’s milestone cases. She represented the Intervenors in support of the FCC in the DC Circuit’s landmark net neutrality case, and has been at the forefront in challenging significant proposed mergers in the media and communications industries before the FCC, successfully arguing against the proposed mergers of AT&T with T-Mobile and Comcast with Time Warner Cable.

Clients value Stephanie’s understanding of the industry and their business, her ability to see and act on the big picture, her effective communication with both technical and legal personnel, and the fact that she is well respected by agency staff.
